Could someone please explain Visa regulations for Jordan, they seem to differ in terms of cost & requirements depending on how and where you enter the country and how long you are staying.
Here are my notes from July 2002:
Americans and Canadians can get visas without any trouble, but our Serbian friend was denied a visa on the spot with no explanation.
We took the Egg'd bus to Jerusalem, walked across to East Jerusalem and caught an Arab shared taxi from Damascus Gate which took us across the Palestinian Territory and through Jericho to the Allenby / King Hussein bridge. Here there is a bus which takes you through the short no-man's-land to the Jordanian border crossing. (All of this was accurately detailed in the Lonely Planet guidebook.)
It look a little while at the border (2 hours) but we had no real trouble.
At that time there were very few foreigners crossing the border there.
